While every single dog who is in a shelter and is in need of rescue, pulls at our heart strings, the seniors really hit us hard here. To know that they must hav ... e been a cherished pet, for so long, and now in their greatest time of need, they are left alone, confused, scared and missing their family, this just breaks our heart. Such a case is Grandpa. Grandpa was taken to a shelter when his owner had passed away and no one in the family could care for him. Alone and confused, older pets often get overlooked, and this is a high-volume municipal shelter, the chances of Grandpa making it out alive are slim. Grandpa is about 12 years old, and for his age is in fairly decent health. He will need a vet visit to address some minor issues. We would LOVE to save this sweet senior. Grandpa does well with other dogs, he has lived in a home with a female before, according to family members. Please help us to save him by considering fostering or adoption. He will be vetted and ready for home. We can't save him without a place for him to go. Go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org to fill out an application for Grandpa. Grandpa Update: 4/2 - doing great in foster, loved and extremely loving. Favorite pastime: napping on his electric blanket. Dog friendly, kid friendly (considerate, older kids), not cat tested.
